A Templar Knight is truly a fearless knight, and secure on every side, for his soul is protected by the armour of faith, just as his body is protected by the armour of steel. He is thus doubly armed, and need fear neither demons nor men." - Bernard de Clairvaux, c. 1135, De Laude Novae Militae—In Praise of the New Knighthood

The Illustrious Order of the Red Cross was birthed from the Templar Knight Society. The Order continues or reverts to the period of the Royal Arch Degree when the Israelites were returning from Babylon to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple. Zerubbabel, their leader prevails upon King Darius to restore the Holy Vessels to the new Temple. They had been carried away by the Babylonian armies when the first Temple was destroyed. In presenting his plea before the King, the companion gives a powerful testimony to the almighty force of Truth.

The ritual places the candidate in the role of Zerubbabel and follows him through his journey to King Darius and his role in the Immemorial Discussion, as found in the apocryphal book, 1 Esdras. The purpose is to bridge the gap between Royal Arch Masonry, and the Chivalric Orders as well the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Illustrious Order of the Red Cross teaches the lessons of the triumph of truth.

The energies, powers and secret knowledge have been handed down through the generations. The magic of the sacred blood along with the transformation magic born into the blood line of these followers are bestowed in these buckles!

The buckles were cherished pieces of the members of the Order. You will gain awakening abilities allowing you to envision past ritual meetings, and receive the abilities and powers that these pieces have encountered while being adorned by former members.These are powerful and incredibly rare---the blood red cross in each piece is what holds the abilities and powers!
